‘Modern Family’ Cast Poses as Iconic Characters From TV’s Past (PHOTOS)

Here’s one way to commemorate television’s comedy trailblazers.

ABC’s Modern Family has already cemented itself as one of TV’s greatest current comedies, but the cast paid homage to some classic TV hits in a new photo shoot.

Julie Bowen, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Eric Stronestreet and the rest of the Emmy-winning cast appear as characters in some of our favorite iconic shows, including The Honeymooners and Bewitched.

Sofia Vergara and Ed O’Neill dressed up as the lovable Lucy and Ricky Ricardo in the I Love Lucy-themed photo, which seems all-too appropriate after years of critics’ comparisons between the two on-screen couples.

Their beloved TV son, Rico Rodriguez, plays the Ricardos’ son, Little Ricky.

‘Modern Family’ Star Julie Bowen Dresses as a Zombie in Halloween Episode (PHOTOS)

The cast of Modern Family is getting into the Halloween spirit in for their upcoming holiday special. The cast was filming today in Los Angeles and Julie Bowen looked positively petrifying as a zombified Alice in Wonderland character.

Bowen laughed off her silly costume with a diet coke while she hung out on set waiting for to shoot her scene.

What do you think of Bowen’s Halloween costume?

Bowen, who just won an Emmy Award for her role as Claire in the show, responded to reports that Ann Romney and Michelle Obama were fans of Modern Family.

The 42-year-old actress told the L.A. Times: “We don’t pretend to be important in the way international events are,” she said. “But I love that Ann Romney and Michelle Obama said Modern Family was their favorite show. That means our show is a place where people can sit on the couch and laughing is the only thing that matters.”

Bowen also joked that her Emmy will be “high out of reach of [her] son” when asked where her newly-awarded trophy will reside in her home.

We can’t wait to see what the rest of the cast is dressed as for the Halloween special. Tell Celebuzz what you think of Bowen’s costume in the comments section below.

 

‘Pitch Perfect’s’ Elizabeth Banks Slams Deadline’s Nikki Finke for Writing ‘Beautiful Actresses Are Not Funny’

Elizabeth Banks has a bone to pick with Nikki Finke after the Deadline editor-in-chief complained about Modern Family star Julie Bowen’s win for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series at this year’s Primetime Emmy Awards.

“Beautiful actresses are not funny. They don’t know how to do comedy,” Finke wrote on Sunday night, adding that Bowen “isn’t a comedienne just like Brooke Shields wasn’t and a zillion more.”

The following day, Banks, 38, posted a rebuttal, titled “Ugly or Pretty Has Nothing to do With Funny,” on her own website.

“Wouldn’t it be great if older, more experienced women like Ms. Finke were kinder to her fellow females in the entertainment business?” Banks wrote.

“She might do more for our cause — better, more fully realized roles in all types of entertainment, which is the territory all these amazing Emmy-nominated actresses are striving for.”

What other words did the Pitch Perfect star have for Finke?

“I agree ‘humiliation’ can be funny,” Banks continued in her rebuttal this week, “but it is not a state of being reserved solely for the ugly, whatever that means to Nikki Finke.”

Banks gave a shout out out 30 Rock actress Kay Cannon and called her “a gorgeous woman with a wicked sense of humor. Cannon is also the brains behind the Pitch Perfect script.

In her Emmys rant on Sunday, Finke also referred to a 30 Rock star: Tina Fey.

Finke wrote, “Only women who grew up ugly and stayed ugly, or through plastic surgery became beautiful, can pull off sitcoms or standups,” using Fey as a prime example.

“[Fey] always points out she looked like a troglodyte when she was younger,” according to Finke.

Emmys 2012: The 10 Best Things the Winners Said Backstage

It’s always fun to be in the press room backstage at the Emmys and talk to the newly-minted winners, who are still stunned and euphoric and not entirely coherent. For an instant, they get to gloat, before pretending once again that the real honor is just being mentioned alongside their fellow nominees.

So it was with the 2012 Primetime Emmys, where a slew of winners from Homeland, Modern Family, and other acclaimed shows got to strut their stuff and wave their trophies for a moment. Celebuzz TV Editor Jethro Nededog was there in the press room on Sunday night, and here are ten of the most memorable things he heard the victorious stars say in their first moments of dazed joy.

Read on for the backstage reactions of Jon Cryer, Claire Danes, Louis C.K., Sofia Vergara, and others.


“Thank God, I’m not giving birth right now. I think it will be some time before my child cares at all about this, if ever. It’s great. It does put things in perspective a little bit, but this is very nice. This person [she points at her belly] may not care, but I do.” — Claire Danes, asked how she’ll tell her unborn child about her Emmy win

“I’m as shocked as you people. That’s why my speech sucked. I thought that Jim Parsons was going to win again. Clearly, Big Bang [Theory] is at the top of its game right now. Unfortunately, he hasn’t gotten any worse right now. He’s still wonderful and I thought this would go to him. I did not for a minute think this was going to happen. So, I apologize for my speech.” — Jon Cryer, on his upset victory

“Why? Because I’m better than I was before. And hopefully I’ll be better later, too. Hopefully, what I’m doing now will be considered not really that good. Whenever you leave behind failure, that means you’re doing better. If you think everything you’ve done has been great, you’re probably dumb. So, I just keep trying to get better. It’s fun to keep trying…. I’m older, too, now. Older people are smarter and funnier.” — Louis C.K., on why Louie has succeeded where his previous shows failed

“You know, I was expecting a little more hostility, to be honest. I still get jokes going through security at airports, ‘Do you have a vest on?,’ you know from security guards. Again, I hark back to Band of Brothers. There’s two people out there that think I won the Second World War. So, and now they think I want to blow everybody up. People build really close relationships with TV characters. They blur reality and fiction quite often. I think that will always be the case.” — Damian Lewis, on whether fans mistake him for his would-be suicide bomber character from Homeland

“The one thing I left out in my acceptance speech is I wanted to give a shout out to two women who work in television who were incredibly influential to me in the election. That’s Tina Fey and Katie Couric. I think, certainly in my research, I saw how influential they were. So, I’m sorry that I forgot to say that tonight. I really am.” — Julianne Moore, on those she failed to thank for their influence on her Emmy-winning portrayal of Sarah Palin in Game Change

“High out of the reach of my son Oliver who broke the first one.” — Julie Bowen, asked where she’ going to put her statuette.

“It’s going to get pretty violent, I’m sure. I’m sure Ed [O’Neill] is going to do his Brazilian ninjitsu on me and steal it.” — Eric Stonestreet, on bringing his trophy back to the Modern Family set

“Yeah, I think so. I don’t think that’s what our fans want. It’s not going to be a fairytale ending. I hope Jesse survives. I think he deserves to survive. But, I’ll see.” — Aaron Paul, asked if he’d be disappointed if Breaking Bad wrapped with a happy ending

“I would say this is a hell of a lot of good fortune. I’m particularly moved to get this for a third series that I’ve done. It’s just, I mean, I need an Advil. I have a headache. I can’t believe it. I’m very thrilled and moved.” — Julia Louis-Dreyfus, on having won Emmys for three different series

“When I hear our names, I can’t believe I’m living this dream here in this country. And to be able to have a show like this and my work to be playing with these people, I mean playing my character, I mean it’s a dream. So even though Julie [Bowen] keeps winning all my awards, I am still very happy and I will still keep coming.” — Sofia Vergara, on what Modern Family’s Best Comedy Series win means to her

 

Emmys 2012: Eric Stonestreet, Julie Bowen Give ‘Modern Family’ a Winning Start (VIDEO)

The 2012 Primetime Emmy Awards have proven to be another huge night for ABC’s Modern Family.

The comedy has already scooped up the awards for Outstanding Supporting Actor and Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy with wins for Eric Stonestreet and Julie Bowen.

Stonestreet took back the award from his co-star Ty Burrell who won the Supporting Actor trophy at the 2011 ceremony. Stonestreet had previously won the award at the 2010 Emmy Awards.

“Oh wow thank you very much, this is amazing,” said funny man Stonestreet in his extremely genuine acceptance speech. “I wouldn’t be standing here without Jesse Tyler Ferguson. There’s no Cam without Mitch.”

What else did the actor have to say in his speech?

Continuing to show the love for his on-screen husband, Stonestreet, 41, spoke to Ferguson, saying, “I’m proud to call you my friend, I love you.” He added jokingly to his fans, “I never knew I’d be playing a gay man on TV, but I love the pictures of the hairy chests you guys are sending me.”

A holler from fellow nominee Sofia Vergara could be heard after Bowen won the the award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series.

The 42-year-old was thankful for her award, saying, “My job really amounts to me falling down and making faces while wearing lipstick and nipple covers. The fact that that could be translated into an award or something artful is really a testament to the people that hired me.” This is the actresses’ second consecutive win in this category.

In addition to the two acting awards, director Steve Levitan also picked up the award for Outstanding Directing in a Comedy Series for his work on Modern Family. And, Modern Family ended the Emmys with a bang — taking home the award for Best Comedy Series.

You can see Stonestreet’s acceptance speech above and Bowen’s below.

Mariah Carey, Jennifer Lopez, Sarah Jessica Parker and More: Stars Who Are Parents to Twins (GALLERY)

Everything is better in pairs — especially for new parents Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer, who welcomed twins into the world.

“The babies were born a few weeks early, but are in good health and both Mom and Dad are overjoyed,” said a joint statement from their reps on Wednesday.

And the True Blood costars-turned-lovers certainly aren’t the first celebrities to get a double delivery from the stork.

So what other couples in Hollywood are proud parents to twins?

From Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon, to Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick, to Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, plenty of A-listers have had a dose of double baby joy.

On their third wedding anniversary, Carey and Cannon welcomed fraternal twins, son Moroccan and daughter Monroe in April 2011.

Parker and Broderick didn’t want to settle for one offspring: In June 20092, the Sex and the City star and her actor hubby welcomed twin girls Marion Loretta and Tabitha Hodge via surrogate, joining big brother James Wilkie.

And Brangelina added to their seemingly ever-growing brood in July 2008, when the actress gave birth to fraternal twins Vivienne and Knox in Nice, France.

Find out what other celebrities have dealt with twice the diaper duty in Celebuzz’s gallery.
